Question: If you had to give up one material possession for good, what would it be?
My Answer: I would give up the TV. I rarely watch TV because there’s just nothing much on that I like. We just have regular broadcast television– we don’t have cable TV or satellite TV or anything like that. All that seems to be on these days is crime shows, crimes shows, and more crime shows. They all depict murder, rape, and violence. I just don’t enjoy all the blood and gore on those shows. It gets old after a while. Someone gets murdered, you see the bloody crime scene, you watch them process that bloody gory crime scene, interview the distraught people involved, and in the end, they solve the crime. Bleh.
There just aren’t any good family shows on TV anymore. I’ve noticed sitcoms are filled these days with profanity and references to sex and/or genitals. Constantly. Oh, and let’s not forget all the scantily clad women. Why do the writers of these shows think that we all want to be inundated and humored with jokes and references to sex and genitals all the time? That’s insulting to me. TV has just become so perverse in my opinion. I always wonder when I do happen to have the TV on, what my mother would think if she were alive today. I know she would be shocked to no end. She wouldn’t like what’s on television these days. It has strayed so far from what is right and good.
